Join the Parade!

Be a part of the First Night Pittsburgh Parade!  We need hundreds of people to show up to wear and carry puppets, banner and lanterns to make this artist-made, people-powered community event a success. That’s right, the parade doesn’t happen without people like YOU showing up.

This is a highly recommended activity for people that need a little more love, joy and community connection in their lives. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Sign up online:
  2. Show up at 7:30 on 10th Street under the convention center
  3. Get a puppet, banner or lantern and join the parade.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to join a Giant Puppet Dance Club in the parade, email
